Got a request? To be considered for next week’s show, drop it in the comments below by noon Tuesday. Requests will be considered as long as they fit the show’s format and generally within the 1stWave era — and provided the host doesn’t harbor an intense dislike of the song. 





  1. Can you dig up “In Power We Entrust the Love Advocated” by Dead Can Dance for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!
